if that is something that catches fire and he feels he's on the defensive about, i go back, fema is popular in the state of florida. my family went through some problems in '04 and '05 during the storms when florida was getting bombarded and both jeb bush and fee ma are popular in the state of florida because of it. >> and you talk about disaster assistance on hold, bring up hurricane katrina and memories of the bush administration which does not play well for republicans. thank you as always to chuck todd, live from the white house. >> okay. >> we will be asking you many more questions in the coming days and have the president's remarks live later this hour. ari, talk about president obama and sort of his role in all of this, whichs is to say he has to act as the commander in chief, a tricky ballet for romney and the white house as well. appear to be above it all, yuts understanding he has a couple days left and has to make his convincing argument before november 6th. >> one job in america that's 24/7 and that's the president. >> oh, no. you have not seen the way th this -- the way she goe
. what about the latest charges that you have made that the defense secretary did not pursue or follow up and respond to requests for help? leon panetta has said there was no way to ascertain safely who to send in and what the situation was on the ground because the video that they were monitoring did not give them a clear picture of what was happening. >> well, that's a different answer than what the president said when the president has repeatedly said they did everything they could possibly do to protect the people in benghazi, i beg to differ. i visited with general hamm the four-star jen until charge, i went to lib why, and when i asked very succinctly and directly did he have the resources the capability to actually go into libya and try to help save those people in benghazi, his response was, that he was not asked to do so. so, on the one hand the president's saying that they did everything they could possibly do on the other hand you hear the defense secretary say it maybe wasn't safe enough. again, that's just a convoluted answer. we're seeking answers. we think the families dese
. because if, indeed, you cut income tax rates by 20%, and you boost defense spending, you've got to -- essentially, you've got to cut discretionary sending, if you're not going to add to the deficit, by a draconian level. you've got to cut it by like 40%, including fema. so, it's impossible to square what we -- again, what we know of his budget plan, since he won't lay them out in detail, and this new statement that, oh, well, of course i'm going to fully fund fema. well, gee, what's he going to say today. of course he loves fema now. but he didn't love it when they were coming up with a budget plan. >> and to eugene's point, if mitt romney thinks he might get some solace from ryan, there's the paul ryan budget, which also slashes any amount, what is it, $23 million from the budget from fema? i mean, again, their actual plans would eviscerate provisions for the kind of plastic surge emergency that this nation is facing today. >> and very shortly, we're going to be discussing whether or not to raise the debt ceiling again. and debt ceilings get pushed out by these kinds of disaste
deploy whatever you have to do, protect our people, why did the secretary of defense leon panetta not get the memo and say we're not fire department. there are so many issues that the mainstream totally failed in a major story. >> i agree they failed but failed from the other side. c.i.a. officials gave us the time line within 24 minutes and it was outraged that the right wing media tried to play this card to hurt this president and play a game with lives of four americans. it's an outrage this is continued as a narrative. >> it's an outrage that those americans have died if in fact they could have been saved. >> they could have been saved. >> lime glad you know that. >> the administration -- >> let me finist >> i said last week there was canalbalism but this is more. whatever happens this election, they have to sort on the to get the blame. david petraeus has made it sure that it is not them. >> jon: we're going to answer more questions on this the next segment. the polls show what americans think but are the media paying attention? >> polls show americans care more about the economy and
, that the obama campaign's playing some defense there, but he can do it if he can win some combination of wisconsin, iowa or new hampshire. >> the ohio news organization poll has it a dead heat in that state, 49%-49%. and also staying in the midwest, in minnesota, mitt romney's actually sliced president obama's large lead in that state. also an independent state, 47%-44 rs 47%-44% according to "the minnesota startribune." you also add on top of that, in iowa, you have a "des moines register" endorsement which is huge. >> that was a big endorsement. >> that is a huge endorsement of that state. they haven't endorsed a republican since richard nixon in 1972. there are few endorsements that still matter. really matter. in iowa, the des moines register endorsement matters. >> not only that, look at the artwork on the front page. >> all right. thank you, barnicle. >> it's tightening up in the midwest. >> the midwest, wisconsin, minnesota. but the wild card in this thing we've already alluded to it is this storm. >> yeah. >> how does it impact early voting? power outages that might continue f
. >> market rundown is next and is president obama playing defense in the midwest? stephanie cutter joins us. first, today's trivia question. when is the last time that a presidential election was held later than november 6th? tweet the answer @chucktodd. victor! i got your campbell's chunky soup. mom? who's mom? i'm the giants mascot. eat up! new jammin jerk chicken soup has tasty pieces of chicken with rice and beans. you know the giants don't have a mascot right mom? [ male announcer ] campbell's chunky soup. it fills you up right. introducing the new droid razr maxx hd by motorola. now more than ever droid does. starts with arthritis pain and a choice. take tylenol or take aleve, the #1 recommended pain reliever by orthopedic doctors. just two aleve can keep pain away all day. back to the news. >>> president obama is back on the road today for the final sprint to election day holding rallies in wisconsin, nevada, and colorado. if you can't tell where this race is, look at president obama's schedule for the next five days and it seems to be all about ohio. joining me now, stephanie cutter
questions were -- in fact, alex can you pull the sound bite of chris christie getting a little bit defensive, i guess, about this all? because it seemed to me that those are two people doing what they are supposed to do. one on the left, one on the right, doesn't really matter, they're both doing what they're supposed to do, but yet at a time when new jersey is suffering its biggest crisis in probably decades and most of our lifetimes, he's getting a question that has him saying this? take a listen. >> and the president of the united states and i have now had six conversations since sunday. that shows to me a level of caring and concern and interest that i think a leadership should be given to this type of situation. this was as comfortable and relaxing an interaction as i've had with the president since i've known him. and i think it's because we're both doing what we want to do, which is to get things done. there will be some folks who will criticize me for complimenting him. well, you know what? i speak the truth. that's what i always do. sometimes you guys like it. sometimes you don't. s
. secretary of defense saying he denied requests for help over that seven hours. >> we'll get to that later. >> but it's a trust issue. >> on the economy, how does it tip the scales, david brooks? >> i think it's been the worst campaign i have ever covered. they are both ending where they started. obama doing a negative campaign. he's got an ad out about romney and the flip-flop and what we have heard. it's almost pure negativity. romney is trying to appeal to moderates and women, which is a bipartisan ad saying i don't care if it's a republican or democrat idea, i'm for that. you know, he has -- it's not who he is or what his policies are. i regard it as a campaign that's not addressed these issues. they are finishing as badly as they started. >> i disagree, david. i think the trust issue links with the economic issue. it's a product. like if you are selling the car, you want air-conditioning, i'll give you that. you want rich, remember all that, i'll give you that. romney is saying you want that, i'll give you that. you want sen tryst, i'll give you that. the auto rescue is a good example
former republican secretary of state, secretary of defense, and national security adviser urged be ratified. >> there is vice president joe biden in lynchburg, virginia. let's go ahead and take you to governor mitt romney. he is in kissimmee, florida, here. just taken the stage there. behind him marco rubio. also connie mack. connie mack represents the fourth district here in florida. >> in english and spanish, and thank you for being here. what a welcome! this is fabulous, thank you. [ cheering ] now let me underline something that connie mack just said. he reminded you that early voting began today. that means that today you can go vote. and it helps for you to vote now because the earlier you vote, the more help you can give us getting other people to the polls? because we're going to have to turn out our people. we need to get people who care about america to go to the polls and vote this election counts. we're going to make this election count for america. now jeff atwater is here. where is jeff atwater? he has been my chairman for the state and i appreciate his help. he is
on for seven hours, we now know that secretary of defense saying he denied requests for help over that seven hours. where is the leadership. it's a trust issue. >> on the economy, how does it tip the scales, david brooks and ej dionne in the final nine days? >> i think this has been the worst campaign i've ever covered. i think they're both ending on the same note they started. obama is doing a negative campaign, he's got an ad out which is called "remember" which is about romney. the plutocrat, the flip-flopper on the stump. romney is trying to appeal to ha moderates, to women, which is a bipartisan ad which is saying -- you know, i don't care if it's republican idea or a democratic idea, i'm going to be for that.b and you know so he has shape-shifted. that's not who he is, that's not who his policies are. i regard this as a campaign that has not addressed any of the fundamental issues and they have finished as badly as they started. >> i disagree. i think the election is a fundamental choice and i think the trust issue links closely with the economic issue. romney has run as a product. you
as 10 to 12 feet it looks like. this dune about 30 yards wide is the last line of defense between the ocean and the town of point pleasant beach, which is this way in front of me. there's a lot of flooding in that town already. it's for the most part evacuated because there are lakes and rivers and an inlet in the sea. all those waters are also rising, and the threat is that the ocean can connect with those waters to essentially obliterate much of the town. it's the same story for many communities up and down the jersey shore in the path of the stor storm. i gather we're the target and bull's eye at in the point. we're really feeling it here. the rain is going sideways. it's wind yichy. the gusts were up to 30 miles per hour. i'm turning this way because there's sand flying off the dune. i have to keep my back down to it to protect my face. it feels like sleet. the town is evacuated, and we've been out and about to see what's going on. police have been going through the neighborhoods trying to make sure that people have evacuated. we've heard reports of two occasions where they ha
, and the secretary of defense sit and watch what happened in real time and not send aid to those people, if everybody understood that is what happened. then they went out and made up a story that it was some unruly mob when it was clearly a planned attack by al qaeda. guest: i think there are a lot of problems with that. there were not watching in real time. i don't want to get into the specifics of the actual and got the attack or anything around it. however, i think there's something important to be done. the full story will be reported. there will be investigations both by the house of representatives and by the state department. republicans to control the house of representatives, by the way. we look forward to those things coming out. whether or not expect a robust surprise, and pretty sure it's not, i'm pretty sure most voters are not paying attention to it and are not taking a close look at it. we will see how it all plays out. -- i am pretty sure it is not the october surprise. host: there's the "washington times" -- guest: this is the nebraska senate seat and senator ben nelson is retiring.
like to wish it's 2008. the reality is they are forced to play some defense in more states that they once believed were safer for the president. the obama campaign is taking the threat seriously enough that they sent president clinton to minnesota tuesday. they're buying airtime in all three states that romney would like to make xcompetitive. but the president's campaign, they called romney's move desperate. in a video released yesterday, the race was framed to his volunteers this way. >> we are ahead or tied in every single battleground state. that means mitt romney has to win not only the tossups but a couple states where we have a clear lead to have any chance of winning the presidency. >> messina ran through the battleground states but explicitly did not mention michigan or minnesota. he says, quote, they are throwing money at states where they never built an organization and have been losing for two years. the romney campaign and its allies' decision to go up with advertising in michigan, pennsylvania, and minnesota is a decision made out of weakness not strength. well
're equal part defense of president obama and anger at the republican party. it's driving what looks to be potentially record early african-american vote which only helps the president. >> and lastly the president leading with overwhelming support when voters were asked does the candidate care about people like you. does care at 62%. mitt romney at 44%. is there an empathy gap that's still plaguing the governor and even more so now that we're going to see the president out with people, the regular folks in new jersey, the people that are dealing with storm cleanup, the first responders and the fema staff? >> yeah, i think this has always been the president's greatest strength and it's one we knew from the very quinnibeginning. it does it not only in person but on tv. what happened in that first debate, he didn't connect for 90 minutes and it put us back in the game. mitt romney closed that gap. i think over the next couple weeks as both of these men make their closing statements to the american people, most important to about seven swing states, mitt romney will have to find that way
to get things done when they get elected. most of them never deliver. now, in defense of president obama, i just want to remind the country tonight that he has had to put up with a record number of filibusters and has gotten no help from the republicans on anything. on anything. when it comes to jobs, and the economy is the most important thing. guess what, in new jersey, the economy just got a hell of a lot tougher. and it's all about laerpd right now. and i hope that president obama and chris christie really by display giving an example to lawmakers who said that they were going to washington to work on behalf of constituents, because i think that we are seeing some real leadership right now, and i think that they can have an impact. and i think it would be good for constituents around the country now to ask the questions of those who are running for office, can you do what those two guys are doing? get your cell phones out? i want to know what you think. tonight's question. do you approve of the federal government's response following hurricane sandy? text "a" for yes, "b" for no to 6
announced the defense department will set up emergency mobile gas stations in the new york area. by the way, the gas is free with a 10 gallon limit. >>> officials predict voter turnout will take a hit in the east as people deal with the lingering problems from the storm. they say president obama stands to lose as many 340,000 votes across new york, new jersey, connecticut, and rhode island. these heavily democratic states, of course, are unlikely to change the outcome of the election. but it's interesting to note that number. the team also notes a turnout drop could be the difference in a close national elect, and thus could shape the political discourse over important policy issues in a possible obama second term. joining me on the phone is william diamante for elections committee in nassau, new york. thank you so much for joining me. >> thank you for having me. >> i just understand you got out a big meeting what is the update on your county? >> we have 350 polling places. as of two days ago we had more than half of our polling places basically totally shut down with no power and no chance
in that local level. >> let me speak up in defense of the republican women, not individually and not their policy. i think one of the other things that matters, comes off of 2008 when we had such prominent women run for president and vice president. the image of what leadership looks like changes every time we elect a woman. the other thank i want to make an argument for, if you're looking at getting toward jebder, you want to have women to vote against just as eagerly as you want women to vote for. you don't just want to be battling the white guys. >> i do think that matters. >> you know sarah palin the way that are most careful than most folks. both representing what your policy disagreements are. >> they're huge. >> yeah. but also pointing out that she performs something interesting by being a relatively young woman with a young family and saying, you know what, i'm going to run for this high office. >> more models of female leadership we see, old, young, different races, different -- >> very feminine models, too. >> all kinds of models. it will get easier for women to get

. lawrence, we looked at the pictures of those gas lines. the department of defense is now sending hundreds of thousands of gallons of gas in. it's not just people filling up cars. they're getting gas for generators, to keep the heat on and refrigerators running, and it's getting cold. overnight last night, it dipped down into the 30s in the new york area, and people are living without heat. >> i just spoke with a friend of ours in the hall who lives in new jersey, and her generator is out of fuel. so there's no heat in her house. two kids in the house. and the question is how much fuel do we have left in the car? and making very difficult decisions about that. you know, i think -- i'm not sure about this. we're going to have to check the history, but staten island may be getting its very first visit from a cabinet member in history. it is the ignored borough. it is the place that's easy to forget in new york city. you know, it's 1,000 feet from new jersey. and it's five miles by water from manhattan. as staten island is happy to be ignored by new york city most of the time, it's never new
